Dear Friends, We just received the following from the Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club:
“TO: All Members – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – In a meeting with Customs Officer Forbes in Marsh Harbour on July 14, 2003, the following answers were received, reviewed and approved concerning the new Customs fees and procedures.
A cruising permit is normally issued for 12 months.
You cannot leave the Bahamas during that period and return on the same cruising permit. You must check in again and pay the published fees.
